A minimally-invasive treatment of BPH that involves inserting two needles into the prostate gland and directing focused heat energy through the needles to the surrounding portions of the prostate gland.
a minimally invasive approach to ablating overgrowth of benign prostate tissue using radiofrequency energy. This procedure can be done in an office setting without the need for general anesthesia.
Surgery for an enlarged prostate. Performed with instruments inserted through the prostate, TUNA transmits bursts of radiofrequency (low-energy) radiation through fine needles.
destruction of prostate tissue with thermal energy that is passed through a needle
A procedure that is used to treat benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). A small probe that gives off low-level radiofrequency energy is inserted through the urethra into the prostate. The energy from the probe heats and destroys the abnormal prostate tissue without damaging the urethra. Also called transurethral radiofrequency ablation.
Also referred to as TUNA. Destroys excess prostate tissue with electromagnetically generated heat by using a needle-like device in the urethra. Treatment for BPH.
